A Literately Hilarious Book 1 septembre 2007
Par Ronald H. Raybin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
You're gonna plotz before you find plots here. And if you lack at least a minimal Jewish background,or don't much care a some modern Jews and their wrestlings with identity, lust, love, religion, and whirlagig confusions, then you probably won't laugh, inwardly and outwardly, at the stylistically marvelous feats of humor that Howard Jacobson pulls off in this uniquely entertaining reading experience. I think that the Washington Post reviewer is really off base when he laments that the book is old hat. I've read umpteen Jewish authors over the years, and Kalooki Nights is entirely new hat to me. But the cartoony title! Yikes! Marginally relevant at best. Finally, the book does ramble. But so does my Uncle Bernie, who, nevertheless, is really enthralling to listen to.

Kalooki Nights 7 janvier 2008
Par Robin Friedman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Kalooki Nights by the English novelist Howard Jacobson tells a story of an English Jewish community in Manchester, England in the years following WW II. The chief protagonist is the narrator, Max Glickman, a cartoonist who has had three wives, two non-Jewish and anti-semitic, and one Jewish, who also endeavors to loosen Judaism's hold on Max. Max's father was an aspiring boxer who became an atheist and tries to give both Max and his other child, his daughter Shani, a secular life. Shani marries a non-Jewish man in what proves to be a successful relationship. Max's mother is an inveterate player of a card game called Kalooki, with a group of other Jewish women.

The book recounts Max's relationship with his childhood friend Manny Washinsky. Unlike Max, Manny was raised in an orthodox household. Manny teaches Max of the horrors of the Holocaust. When Max's older brother becomes romantically involved with a non-Jewish woman and the parents do everything in their power to terminate the relationship, Max ultimately gasses them to death in their bed and spends many years in prision. Years later Max and Manny meet again, when an anti-semitic television producer hires Max to do research on a story about Manny.

In many ways, this book is a cross between "Portnoy's Complaint" and other early books by Philip Roth and "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay", the story of two American Jewish cartoonists, by Michael Chabon. The book has as some of its themes the tension between secularism and traditional religiosity as options for modern Jews, the Holocaust and its impact on Jewish life and belief, and the relationship between Jews and non-Jews, particularly as the relationships involve sexuality and intimacy.

The book is funny in many places and insightful in some. But it is told in a blustery, wandering, and diffuse style which make it difficult to follow. The language is wordy, profane, and satirical -- probably in an attempt to create some artistic distance between the author and the events which he describes -- but much of the book I found painful. The characters, Jewish and non-Jewish, are full of bigotry for each other and hatred for themselves. Sexual themes play a large role in the book, as the Jewish men are embittered towards Jewish women -- thinking that the women will not become involved in a sexual relationship with them -- and the non-Jewish women are drawn to what they think they perceive of Jewish men. This is a story that has been told before, and it is drummed in unmercifully in this novel.

Some of this story has a context broader than the ambiguous situation that, for the author, many Jewish people find themselves in or create for themselves. The author deals implicitly with the need of people to find spirituality for themselves without the extremes of total secularism on the one hand on routinized fundamenalism or othodoxy on the other hand. But the self-pitying, solipsistic outlook of most of the characters of the book, together with its windy, unorganized character, make this novel a chore to read and largely unsuccessful.

and you thought you were obsessed about Jews... 28 juin 2007
Par Raphael Rubin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Jonathan Safran Foer noted in the NY Times that Kalooki Nights "is a tragedy, and a work of genius". Indeed, it is a masterpiece. I laughed and cried from start to end.
Membership in the tribe (or honorary membership) may be necessary to absorb its full impact. Indeed, if any recent book emerges as a Jewish classic, this will be the one. Jacobson is now in the Pantheon.

Rambling 3 août 2007
Par madcarrot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I could not finish this book. It is well written and in parts laugh-out-loud funny but the plot was too rambling for me. As the previous reviewer said, membership in the tribe may contribute to one's enjoyment - as a non-tribe member, much of the book was lost on me. I debated as to whether or not I should keep reading, but finally decided to give up. I have a feeling that had the subject matter been anything else, I'd have liked this book as I enjoyed his use of words. But that's like saying I'd like chocolate ice cream if it wasn't chocolate.

True or not! His family life or not! It goes on and on...and on. 25 mars 2014
Par Cornelia(CONNIE) MacErlean author of "Baggage" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This rating exclaims 'interest neutral'. Have I passed my dedication to the 'Jewish' family, the amazing Jewish joke, the perpetual interrelationships of the Jewish family and extended family members? Enough already! I have, I have. There is no plot or there seems to be a sad lacking thereof. Perhaps the Jewish history in this sad world is all the reader needs to maintain the interest? I do not claim to know. My expectations have not been met but Howard Jacobson you are still one of my favourite writers.
